This is a Memphis Catholic landmark. It is a beautiful old church with a Our Lady of Lourdes grotto inside the church. It is also the oldest soup kitchen in the United States going back to the 1860's or 70's.

The stain glass windows are a great part of this Catholic Church. I love the side alcove for Mother Mary. The homily was good. I enjoyed the few homilies I have heard there.

The chapel is beautiful. The stain glass makes for lovely pictures. This is a perfect place not only for worship but weddings that are medium to large. It is old but still in excellent shape. The court yard is very private - great for pictures....More

I am not sure if you have already traveled, so I will reply anyway! St. Mary's is considered part of Old Downtown, so Beale Street is pretty close. It is under a mile away to the north from Beale. Parking at St. Mary's is... More
